Citing material from the Archives

Citing where you got your information is important so that future scholars can trace your work and build on it.

For material you found in the archives you cite the item as normal (as a book, film, photo, article, etc.) and then tack on a special citation for the archives.

For citing things in general see Penn State Libraries Citation and Writing Guides

When citing materials from the archives please use / add:

[Item Title], [Name of box if applicable], Nesbitt Library, Pennsyvania State University, Wilkes-Barre.

So for the Country Life magazine article the APA citation would be:

Hayfield House: The Pennsylvania Estate of Mr. John Conyngham (1935, February). Country Life, 18-25, Nesbitt Library, Pennsylvania State University, Wilkes-Barre.
